Keep on getting error message Bash Command Not Found


Hello Community,

You will probably notice from the question I'm very new to Linux.

Each time I enter any command I keep on getting the error message Bash command not found.

My suspicion is that I'm not in the right directory, however I could be wrong.

Can someone please let me know how to overcome this problem?

[Expert@chkptvmaa:0]# save config
bash: save: command not found
[Expert@chkptvmaa:0]# show command
bash: show: command not found
[Expert@chkptvmaa:0]# show all
bash: show: command not found
[Expert@chkptvmaa:0]# show commands
bash: show: command not found
[Expert@chkptvmaa:0]#

Thanks

Carlton

Bash is telling you that commands named save and show do not exist in any location included in the default path of the logged in user. Try cat instead of show, and touch instead of save, and you shouldn't get command not found messages. Try 'echo $PATH' to see the locations bash tried to find save and show commands to run.

Mazda,

Thanks for responding. I get the following when I type echo PATH

[Expert@chkptvmaa:0]# echo $PATH
/opt/CPinfo-10/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/opt/CPshrd-R77/bin:/opt/CPshrd-R77/util:/opt/CPshrd-R77/web/Apache/2.2.0/bin:/opt/CPsuite-R77/fw1/bin:/opt/CPsuite-R77/fw1/oracle_oi/sdk:/opt/CPsuite-R77/fg1/bin:/opt/CPda/bin:/opt/CPppak-R77/bin:/opt/CPportal-R77/webis/bin:/opt/CPportal-R77/portal/bin:/opt/CPrt-R77/bin:/opt/CPuepm-R77/bin:/opt/CPuepm-R77/engine/jre/bin:/opt/CPshrd-R77/database/postgresql/bin:/opt/CPcvpn-R77/bin:/opt/CPSmartLog-R77/bin:/home/admin/bin
[Expert@chkptvmaa:0]#

What do you suggest?

Cheers

There is nothing to suggest, that is simply telling you where bash will look to find commands, and in what order.

I would suggest that you do some reading to become familiar with the Linux operating system. Otherwise you will not know what questions to ask, and will not understand many of the answers you receive.

A very good place to start is with the LINUX: Rute User's Tutorial and Exposition.

Welcome to LQ, and good luck!

Hell Mazda,

According to the following guide http://dl3.checkpoint.com/paid/66/66...86a7a&xtn=.pdf should I point the directory to cd /bin/bash and I should be able to issue the commands, see attachment for a screen shot

Tell us what it is you are trying to accomplish with those non-existent save and show commands. You could also try the help command.

it is not related to bash anyhow. You need to execute clish first and show/save will work in it. Just read the pdf you posted (page 20)

So, I issued the clish first as you suggested, but it didn't work:

[Expert@chkptvmaa:0]# clish save config
Usage-
clish [-d DebugLevel -i -l ExtLck -s -o OutFmt { -c Cmd | -f File }]
-c Cmd ;Single command to execute.
-d N ;Debug Level in which shell should operate.
-f File ;File to load configuration from.
-i ;Ignore cmd failure in batch and continue.
-l ExtLck ;Use the given lock-id.
-o OutFmt ;Output format (pretty, xml, structured).
-s ;Issue 'save' at the end.
[Expert@chkptvmaa:0]#

Hi Mazda,

The following didn't work either:

[Expert@chkptvmaa:0]# clish show commands
Usage-
clish [-d DebugLevel -i -l ExtLck -s -o OutFmt { -c Cmd | -f File }]
-c Cmd ;Single command to execute.
-d N ;Debug Level in which shell should operate.
-f File ;File to load configuration from.
-i ;Ignore cmd failure in batch and continue.
-l ExtLck ;Use the given lock-id.
-o OutFmt ;Output format (pretty, xml, structured).
-s ;Issue 'save' at the end.


I'm sure there is something very simple that I'm missing here....

Cheers

I would first try to execute clish only and next comes save or whatever....
or clish -c command as you posted it.

pan64,

That was the correct answer... I was certain it was something as simple as that.

Thanks mate
